It is not uncommon to hear and shortly afterwards see a steam locomotive, be it road roller, traction engine or showman's engine or road train locomotive winding its way steadily through an English village or town. But at the start of the 20 century Britain exported these devices all over the world; as far a field as Argentine, Australia, South, East and West Africa, Russia and nearer home to France and Germany. Here these are lovingly restored and I am wondering if the same happens in your country, do you ever see such machines? all the best urban

You're English, Urban, so I can say it: Your title for this discussion is plain loco - but not in the way it should be.

Well, I concede that, as a good Englishman, you're not too pushy.

You're not a would-be B'r'ham stoker, are you?

We let them die. Only one, the train that used to "climb" our mountain, Pelion. It's beautiful, it runs slow an passes through the wood and near houses. http://www.hotelsline.gr/root/newhotel/mx//Magnisia/trenaki10_2.jpg
